A village and well known holiday resort alongside some superb beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a populace of about 4,707 inhabitants and is perhaps most recognized for its association with the Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The area is additionally known for its fields of lavender, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to Heacham in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be known as a beach resort in Victorian times, due to the building of the railway line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. This culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the 1880's replacing the old wooden bridge. The village is just as favoured nowadays as a tourist resort, with both the South and North Beach being peppered with caravan parks.

The beach areas in this area are placed upon the east shores of The Wash, as a consequence it's one of the only beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

History of Heacham: It's more than likely roughly 5 millenia since the 1st human settlers colonized in the region surrounding Heacham, and the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, show evidence of that. Habitation persisted there all through the Iron Age and into Roman times, though it was likely not until the 5th century when the earliest real village was established there. The name of the village is said to be derived from the title of a local Lord of the Manor during the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no firm evidence that this is the truth. An extra possibility is, the name is derived from the local River Hitch.

Noted down in the 1086 Domesday Book as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that moment in time included 143 households (making it rather big for this time) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest (1066) the area was ruled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest surviving building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in the Norman style and was completed in 1230, one of its bells is in fact even earlier than this, dating from approximately eleven hundred, one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. The village sign together with a tablet inside the church tell of the famous links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just twenty two when she died 3 years later, however she gave birth to a son called Tom, who later returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was eventually destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being set up between nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the goal of growing and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. In 1936 there would be one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since then the venture has grown appreciably, and brand new varieties have been raised. Lavender is currently exported all throughout the world.

The village can be reached by means of the A149 and the B1454, it is around 3 miles (5km) from Hunstanton, fourteen miles from King's Lynn, 43 miles from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
